Pool Tile Inspirations

It’s that time of year where our Instagram and Pinterest feeds are full of jaw-dropping pool images that make us long for summer vacation. Icy blue water, a few palm trees and an umbrella drink does the body and mind good!

The finish of a pool can completely transform its design to a new level of style. One of our favorite finishes, of course, is glass mosaic tile at the water line or on the walls outside of a pool. Glass is the most popular tile for the water applications because it doesn’t warp, fade or need much maintenance. The installation takes on a different personality depending on the time of day. Another benefit of glass tile is the wide variety of mosaics available. You can go with classic blues and aquas, or you can go with an unexpected color or shape.
